Homologues of the Escherichia coli (E. coli) Ras-like protein (ERA), a GTP-binding protein with RNA binding activity, have recently been found in various species, including human, mouse, and Antirrhinum majus. Depletion of prokaryotic ERA blocks cell division without affecting chromosome segregation. However, the physiological function of eukaryotic ERA is(More)
A subgroup of individuals with mood and psychotic disorders shows evidence of inflammation that leads to activation of the kynurenine pathway and the increased production of neuroactive kynurenine metabolites. Depression is hypothesized to be causally associated with an imbalance in the kynurenine pathway, with an increased metabolism down the(More)
